STEAM Outside Camp @ Tree Pittsburgh

Thursday, June 25, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Get your kids out­side this summer!

Tree Pittsburgh’s STEAM Out­side Camp will engage your 4th, 5th, or 6th grad­er in the urban for­est, fields, and rivers through a STEAM (Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy, Engi­neer­ing, Art, and Math­e­mat­ics) lens. Camp takes full advan­tage of Tree Pittsburgh’s new 5‑acre river­front cam­pus with inter­ac­tive activ­i­ties focused on the nat­ur­al envi­ron­ment, loca­tion-based bio­di­ver­si­ty includ­ing ripar­i­an forests and riv­er habi­tats, as well as our Her­itage Nursery.

Each day of STEAM Out­side Camp will have a dif­fer­ent theme, allow­ing campers to learn about insects, tree iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, refor­esta­tion, tree biol­o­gy, and more. This week-long day camp will take par­tic­i­pants into the Tree Pitts­burgh Her­itage Nurs­ery to uncov­er the fas­ci­nat­ing life of trees from seed up through their first years of growth. Through jour­nal­ing, art, hands-on lessons, and excit­ing projects, campers will explore the urban for­est while flex­ing their STEAM mus­cles in an out­door set­ting. Par­tic­i­pants will also have the chance to meet Tree Pittsburgh’s staff arborists and dis­cov­er how they can make a dif­fer­ence in the urban for­est through first-hand expe­ri­ences and field techniques.

Camp is designed for stu­dents enter­ing 4th, 5th, or 6th grade in Fall 2020. The total cost is $200, which includes instruc­tion and healthy snacks. Campers should bring their own lunch. If you have more ques­tions or would like to apply for a camp schol­ar­ship, please con­tact Com­mu­ni­ty Edu­ca­tion Man­ag­er Joe Stavish at joe@treepittsburgh.org.

Please note: your reg­is­tra­tion is not final until you com­plete an addi­tion­al form with more infor­ma­tion about your camper. This form will be in your con­fir­ma­tion email.
